Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

Traditional Wealth Creation Schemes in Nigeria
Rethinking Economics The Uploaders (RETU), 2021
Public lectures on some Traditional Economic Solutions to poverty in Nigeria, specifically the Igbo Apprentice System, Yoruba Ajo Thrift Savings, and Hausa Integral Communalism. Rethinking Economics The Uploaders (RETU) invites you to a webinar with influential academics from Nigeria to lecture on three traditional economic solutions to poverty: the Igbo Apprenticeship System, the Yoruba Ajo Thrift Savings, and the Hausa Communalism. The event aims to educate on how these Nigerian traditional economic systems work, propose that they be included in the college Economics curriculum, and advise on how their principles can be applied at both micro and macro levels to lift many people out of poverty.
